Bay Roberts is another step closer to a replacement for Coley’s Point Primary.
JMJ Holdings Ltd. was awarded a $16.2-million contract to build the new 4,100-square-metre facility. The new single-storey school will be constructed behind Amalgamated Academy on Eric Dawe Drive in the town.
Construction is expected to begin in the spring, and be finished in early 2021.
MHA Pam Parsons says the town has been waiting a long time for the news.
For well over a decade, the community has been putting a case forward to replace the existing 60-year-old school.
